Project No.:
121-16-93
Start Date:
01 January 1993
End Date:
31 December 1999

Progress

The Second Workshop was held in Valladolid, Spain, July 3-5 1996 with 24 oral presentations and 26 posters. Twenty papers were selected for publication in a Special Issue of Fluid Phase Equilibria, Vol. 133 (1/2), 1- 270 (1997).

A very successfulThirdand Final workshop was held as part of the 15th.IUPAC International Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics, Porto,Portugal, August 1998, with 10 oral and11 poster presentations and a final round-table discussion. Selectedpapers were published as : Special Issue, 3rd International Workshopon Vapour-liquid equilibria and related properties in binary and ternarymixtures of ethers, alkanes and alkanols, Fluid Phase Equilibria,Vol. 156, 1-236 (1999). The following key systems were identifiedas being of particular interest with a need for further experimentalmeasurements of all the relevant properties:

MTBE +- methanol +- hexane/heptane

TAME +- amyl alcohol +- hexane/heptane

Diethyl ether +- ethanol +- pentane/hexane/heptane

Project completed.
